Blogcritics.org: Do PDAs have a future?

Are PDAs an endangered species? I think it's an interesting subject and one worth thinking about. It seems to me that PDAs will always have a place in that their power and utility get somewhat lost in an integrated device WHICH has as it's primary feature set a phone. But the approach of the PocketPC Smartphone which integrates voice capabilities into a great PDA seems to me to be the most winning combination. Nothing against Palm, but as you see from this users experience, the more advanced features still aren't implementing well on the PalmOS. This is where PocketPC shines. I think PDAs just for calendaring and contacts are threatened but not the richer experience PDAs with voice and as a subset of services.
